Raduga Grez Stacking Tower
Bundle & Save
A classic donut stacking tower in a beautiful desert palette. The graduated stacking rings create a simple “puzzle” for toddlers and preschoolers, who learn spatial relationships and basic physics through stacking and ordering the pieces. They also make a beautiful display item on the nursery or bedroom shelf. The possibilities are as boundless as the imagination!

A few special words from us
Open ended toys, such as the Raduga Grez Stacking Tower, present infinite possibilities to children. They are great exploratory tools that the child can use for imagination and creativity. Plus, these activities help a baby learn about spatial relationships — "under," "on," and "around" — and shapes (and cause and effect when he knocks his structures down!). This wooden toy is ideal for ages 9 months +, but the following activity, where we use the toy in an unconventional way, could be introduced a little later.
Age: 12 months +
Benefit: Spatial Awareness & Motor Skills
Activity: Take the wooden disks and show your baby how to balance them on their sides and roll them along the floor. You may like to position your baby a meter or so from you and roll them towards your baby. See if they can catch them and roll them back to you. Extension: For older babies (14 months +) show them how they can put a drumstick in the centre of the disk and use it to wheel the disk along the floor.
